Just for Kids is a popular series of fun, informal, interactive chamber ensemble concerts lasting 45 to 50 minutes. The performances use humor, story-telling, demonstrations and participation to introduce classical music and orchestral instruments in an entertaining and kid-friendly environment to families including those with very young children. The programs are presented at 10:00 and 11:15 on the first Saturday morning of each month from October through May with the exception of January and March this season.

In The Tortoise and the Hare, Tonya the Tortoise has lots of great qualities, but speed is not one of them.  However, she was about to race one of the fastest animals she knew – Harriet the Hare!  Despite her friends’ doubts, she had a feeling she might have exactly what was needed to win.  Who will emerge victorious?  Find out when the TSO Wind Quintet performs a trio of fables.

The Just for Kids Series receives support from Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Arizona, the National Bank of Arizona, the Arizona Commission on the Arts, the Arts Foundation and many individual donors.
